What should be Indian bowling combination for WTC final?

Recommended Posts

Combo 1

Jaddu

Ashwin

Bumrah

Siraj

Ishant

 

2 spinners, Jadeja is as good as any #7 batsman. Is Ashwin as good as 4th pacer? He can be better batsman than 4th pacer.

 

Combo 2

Jaddu

Bumrah

Shami

Ishant

Siraj

 

4 pacers - that's only diff

 

Combo 3

Jaddu

Thakur

Bumrah

Ishant

Siraj

 

Thakur maybe as useful as Ashwin and Shami with ball and as good as Ashwin with bat.

 

Combo 4

Jaddu

Ashwin

Thakur

Bumrah

Ishant/Siraj

 

Advantage - batting upto #9. Is Thakur as good as 3rd pacer?

  1. Ishant
  2. Siraj
  3. Ashwin
  4. Jaddu
  5. Bumrah

 

  • with 5 lefties and having an edge over williamson Ashwin is a must 
  • If i have to consider thakur it ll be for Bumrah, So ill keep that option open till last . An outswing bowler like Thakur can be very very handy also the lower order will make a difference in this match. Also thakur is a fighter and in such situation such players can change the game

Jadeja can play as batsman alone imo. He will be as good as Vihari, Mayank or Rahul. Him being a lefty is a huge plus. If he is dropped, it will be a historic blunder. 

 

Now, 3 pacers will definitely play. Bumrah and Ishant are lock. By the looks of it Siraj is ahead of Shami in the eyes of Kohli. So  likely will play. That leaves one spot and 3 contenders- Ashwin, Shami and Thakur.

 

Shami will make the tail too long. So he sadly has to miss out.

 

Ashwin and Thakur, both are similarly capable with the bat. But even though conditions favour Thakur, Ashwin is a much superior test bowler. NZ have plenty of LHs and they will be much more scared facing Ashwin than Thakur. Also if top 3 pacers aren't enough, there's little Thakur could do.

 

Jadeja

Ashwin

Ishant

Bumrah

Siraj(mind) / Shami(heart)

Ashwin to negate the left hander threat (there's a pretty big chance of Santner playing at no.7 to allow for a four prong seam attack for NZ... So that makes 4 left handers in their top 7) 

 

Jadeja makes the team as a batsman alone and him being the left hander can be huge bonus as well. I hope the TM uses him (and Pant) as a floater in the batting order. 

 

Ishant another one to counter their lefties from around the wicket. And for his performances in England last time around. 

 

Siraj as he's probably the most in-form indian fast bowler right now. Good fielder and catcher too... 

 

Bumrah...well because he's Bumrah.

Combo 1 easily..

 

Bumrah - obviously

Jaddu is a sure starter.. Sanju Manju can F off

Ashwin vs Thakur - tricky, but will go with Ashwin for his guile, experience and the fact that NZ has 3 leftie batsmen in the top 6

two of Shami, Siraj, Ishant - again tricky.. but go with the ones that look in the best rhythm.

Not in WTC Final but at some point, they should give Vihari a go too. Maybe even as openera also.

 

 

In 5 match series most would get a game or two.

 

I'm more interested to see Sundar as opener.Would solve a big problem if it works.Leftie too
